FAQ

What is the first step to getting a web site developed?
Go to our Request Information page, and I’ll contact you within 24 hours. If you would prefer a quicker response, please call 313-724-9852.

What if I don’t have a domain name?
As part of the site development, I’ll help you choose a domain name and will register it through the hosting company. The cost is $20 for a domain name with Who Is Privacy.

 

What if I already have a domain name registered?
If you don’t have a web hosting provider then you should start looking for the e-mail that was sent when you registered the name. It will have the necessary account and password info on it so that we can update your name servers.

If you have a hosting provider that you’re happy with and you have your account login information, then you won’t need to do anything. I’ll replace any existing files on the server with the new site files.

 

What type of payments do you take?
I accept checks or credit cards via PayPal. A 50% deposit is required to start your site with the balance due upon completion before it goes live.

 

How much is this going to cost me every month?
Hosting will cost between $5 - $45 per month depending what your needs are. This is prepaid on an annual basis with discounts for longer terms.

 

Are you available for changes or updates?
Yes, I am. I take care of updates in a timely manner and charge $40.00/$60.00 hour for my work. If an update only takes me a few minutes you won’t even receive a bill. I’ll keep track of time spent on minor updates, and send an invoice after accumulating one hour of work.

 

I want my site to show up first or second in the search engines. Can you make that happen?
If you’re not familiar with the term, “SEO” or “Search Engine Optimization”, is an entity of its own. The demand for top placement is great, and the more saturated your market is, the tougher high search engine rankings become.

I will design your web site to enhance search engine placement by using key words in the text, coding the meta tags, and utilizing other useful SEO techniques.

But I want my site to show up number one next week!
Once a site is created with clean coding, then brought online and submitted to the main search engines, it can take 6-8 weeks to achieve good search engine rankings.

If your site has been properly written, key words are placed in the main body of text, title tags have been used in an appropriate manner, etc., then you should naturally see good to excellent rankings within a few months.
